Jack -
In addition to my preceding 03Dec13 posting showing the fuel tank neck and exterior plate in the wheel well, herewith photos showing the neck's interior plate in the trunk.

Wil,
This is very helpful. I was also wondering where the washer bottle was attached to the firewall and now I know.
Many Thanks!
Jack

This has been an extremely helpful thread - I have a few more questions as although I did remove my tank - it was not correctly installed last time around.

- The new tank from Stoddard sits low in the fuel filler aperture - it rests on the bottom edge of the hole. Should I be spacing the underneath of the tank where it rests in the body on the filler side of the tank to try and get the filler neck more or less centered in the hole?
- If there are two plates that go around the neck, one interior and one exterior, does it need two seals, one for each plate?

- Regarding the picture of Bob's completed fuel filler (with collar inside). Bob, if the collar is fully inside, doesn't your filler neck rub on the edge of the aperture, metal on metal? I see from the photo that your tank sits low in the filler neck aperture in the fender too.

thanks

John

2 Plates 1 rubber on outside of inner fender. There should not be metal to metal gas tank to front floor opening for tank. I am not sure what is "correct" but it seems best to use something which will not retain moisture and promote rust.
1965 356C There is never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over.
